GALLUP, N.M. -- Back in 1968, when he was first elected mayor of this dusty Western town, Edward Munoz led a campaign to prevent a local theater from showing "Rosemary's Baby," a movie he considered obscene. Now, he says, that movie seems like a Disney production.
"Call me old-fashioned, but I like Spencer Tracy and Bob Hope," said the 63-year-old Mr. Munoz, who is once again, after a years-long absence, the top municipal officer of this community of 18,000.
"You just don't have folks like that anymore. Our standards have slipped. Some of the stuff you see and hear these days isn't only bad, it's embarrassing."
